Massive Abductions Continue in Chechnya
Local sources have reported that over the last two months, hundreds of young men were abducted in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.
On February 16, armed bandits from the pro-Moscow regime surrounded the car market in the city of Urus-Martan. They forced dozens of young men into their vehicles and left the area for an unknown destination.
The same day, in the evening, armed bandits abducted a few young men from a mosque near Grozny.
On February 15, in the village of Goragorsk, which is not far from Grozny, 3 young men were abducted by armed bandits from the pro-Kremlin regime.
On February 14, armed Kadyrovites surrounded a local mosque in Gudermes. They abducted about 30 young men. Then, on the direct orders of Khasan Akhmadov, administrative head of the pro-Moscow regime in the region, they were taken to a local pro-Russian detention center.
Local sources claim that the head of the pro-Moscow regime’s Leninsky district police department named Isa is actively participating in these abduction operations.
So far, the fate and whereabouts of many of these abductees are unknown. Even still, under such serious conditions, no human rights organizations based in the Russian occupied Chechnya have spoken about the situation, because, families of the victims are afraid to give written statements related to the abductions.
